Remaining Inter-Continental Cup Fixtures Released

The remaining fixtures in the current Intercontinental Cup competition have been released, and you can find the full list on our Fixtures page. Zimbabwe's next match won't be until August 2010, when the side travel to Canada and Netherlands, while the final two matches against Ireland and Scotland are currently billed as "home" games - although I suspect they may well end up being played on neutral territory.

Zimbabwe to Tour South Africa

Zimbabwe will visit South Africa for a two-match ODI series in November, in a move seen as giving the Proteas a warm-up ahead of England's visit to the country. The first match will be at Willowmore Park, Benoni on November 8th (just 3 days after the final ODI in Bangladesh), with the 2nd at Centurion on November 10th.

Scotland Inter-Continental Cup Match to Take Place in Dubai?

The Scotsman carries and interview with Cricket Scotland Chief Executive Roddy Smith that indicates that the Intercontinental Cup match between Zimbabwe XI and Scotland is set to take place on neutral territory:

An inter-continental cup clash with Zimbabwe is also on the cards with the setting Dubai while qualifying for the next world twenty:20 competition will be held in February.

While the political situation has improved in Zimbabwe over the past year, there's still doubt about the willingness of the British government to allow Zimbabwe to play in the UK - it's this uncertainly that will likely be behind the shift. It'll be interesting to see where the fixture against Ireland ends up being played...

Kenya Tour To Be Extended

Kenya's tour to Zimbabwe looks set to be extended, according to CricInfo, with additional ODIs to be added to the schedule. With there already a very short gap between the current scheduled end of the tour and Zimbabwe's visit to Bangladesh, the extra matches will most likely be fitted in by bringing the start of the series, which includes Zimbabwe XI's Intercontinental Cup match against Kenya, forward. No revised schedule as yet, but we'll post it once we have it.
